The City of Mississauga has selected Rick Conard as the new director of building and chief building officer, replacing Ezio Savini who retires this month.

“I am confident that with his exceptional leadership skills and experience, Rick will be a great addition to the City’s extended leadership team,” said Andrew Whittemore, commissioner planning and building. “Rick will help guide the City through the rapidly changing landscape of regulations and reform in development and building, while continuing to create a culture that promotes strong customer service values, innovation and continuous improvement.”

Conard will oversee six key areas of operations that focus on administering zoning by-laws, the Ontario Building Code Act and its regulations; processing applications for building permits, zoning certificates, sign permits, second unit registrations as well as ensuring building compliance and conducting building examinations and field inspections.

“I am excited and flattered to have the opportunity to join the team at the City of Mississauga,” Conard said. “I’m looking forward to contributing to the ongoing efforts of delivering, supporting and implementing key initiatives for the continued successful planning, building and growth of Mississauga.”

Prior to joining the City of Mississauga, Conard was chief building official at the City of Brampton and then acting commissioner, corporate services and the acting director of purchasing. Prior to that, he held the role of Deputy Chief Building Official at the City of Toronto.
